High voter turnout makes for long lines -- at Chik-fil-A



UPDATE 3:30 p.m.: Chic-Fil-A on Fourth Street is now out of free sandwiches and instead is giving out a free 8-pack of chicken nuggets.

Voters were probably braced for long waits at their polling places today, but many have shown their willingness to wait in more than one line today: a Chik-fil-A promotion promising a free chicken sandwich today to anyone who will turn over their "I Voted" sticker resulted in long lunchtime lines at the franchise's Fourth Street N location in St. Petersburg. Several hundred of the chain's 1,400 locations nationwide participated in the promotion.
